Hi! My name is Chris Henderson, I’m a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner who, after suffering the effects of working for years in an office as coach and consultant, now educates on the importance of Light to maintain Optimal Health!
In our modern world ‘Mal-Illumination’ is now as much an epidemic as poor nutrition was a few decades ago. Too much exposure to what I call ‘Fake Junk Light’ from LED screens and lighting in our homes and workplaces can cause a myriad of adverse symptoms including: eye strain, headaches, sleep problems, concentration and behavioural issues, and fatigue, as well as contribute to more serious conditions such as cognitive degeneration and certain types of cancers.
What most of us don’t realise is that our eyes, brain and skin are tuned to receive very subtle energies, frequencies and colour spectrums from sunlight, and these activate very specific chemical and electrical functions in our bodies to maintain optimal health.
With this in mind it is paramount that we get adequate healthy sunshine into our daily activities, but also just as important to bring aspects of this natural spectrum to the indoor environment! This will help facilitate energy and mental alertness and a sense of well-being during the day time; and mitigate and reduce harmful impacts of Blue Light at night to protect important sleep hormone function and ensure optimum repair and recovery.
